How do you know it is spring in Germany?

Just check how many of all ages are out walking, jogging, roller-blading, bike-riding and horse-riding. Absolutely gorgeous day today! Walking through the forest you hear a cacophony of forest birds, along country roads you hear and see larks and lapwings and, passing a farm, the geese try to discourage you from getting too close. They can be pretty loud. So after one hour’s walk we stopped at a Gasthof for refreshments, as did this rider. He parked his horse in the bike park area. Is that legal? Well, he does not seem to care, because where would anybody stick the parking ticket!?
